Dreaming in Indian

I LOVED this anthology of Native American poetry, short stories, interviews, art, and photographs. It captured the very real struggles, beliefs, and hopes of a young generation of aboriginal youth in Canada and America. Beautifully crafted and haunting, this collection is a must read. It's inspiring, heartbreaking, and hopeful. Surviving against the odds and holding onto the past is no easy feat and these works capture the struggle. It is a fantastic collection and a must read for all in order to understand the complexities of their beliefs and culture. Although aimed at teens, it surpasses that demographic and has something to offer for everyone.
